JANUARY 28 • 2022 This Friday the purse bid to promote the fight between the World Boxing Council heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury; and interim champion Dillian Whyte, was held virtually.
The winner of the rights to stage this important clash was Queensberry Promotions, with an amount of US$ 41,025,000.00. Matchroom Boxing made an offer of US$32,222,222.00
Tyson Fury (31-0-1,22 Ko`s) comes from defending his crown on October 9, by defeating former world champion Deontay Wilder in a great fight.
Dillian Whyte (28-2-0, 19 Ko’s) will come to this fight after defeating Russian Alexander Povetkin via a rematch in March of last year.
The World Boxing Council implemented an innovation some years ago, by having 10% of the amount as a bonus to the winner of the fight, thus giving great additional incentive interest. In this case, the winner will receive a bonus of US$ 4,102,500.00!
Queensberry Promotions will release more details on the highly anticipated match between Fury and Whyte soon.
